Pacifica 2005 all wheel drive stuck in limp mode. codes p0420 catalyst effeciency below now normal. p0404 erg valve

: ( Dealer has the tools to properly diagnose these combinations of problems. Concern for the catalytic converter damage when operating under non normal closed loop operation.

The OBDII will try to protect the engine and driver by reverting to the limp home mode. Driving extended distance not recommended.

Dealer specific Chrysler analysis tools can pin point the problem allowing for problem resolution.

Hope this helps?

When do I replace timing belt on 2008 Audi A4 (2.0) ? Dealer says 75,000 miles Manual says 110,000 miles current milage is 74,400 Thanks for your guidance. Paul Worley

The manual states the maximum, I always try to replace them around 90 thousand
miles. On some engines, the valves and pistons are an interference setup and if the
timing belt jumps time or breaks ,then the cylinders strike the valves ,requiring
remanufacturing of the head.

I'm receiving an Error code po441, I took it to the dealer who replaced the EGR valve and reset the engine light and cleared codes a week ago, now my engine light just came back on with same code

Some dealer you got there

PO441-EVAP System --Incorrect Purge Flow

They may have found an EGR Valve issue,
but they certainly blew off the EVAP Code

I would guess you have a bad EVAP Canister
Purge Valve or some other purge control

What can I use to clean ERG valve and how do I remove engine light?

In general your do not clean the EGR valve you replace it. When you replace it the code should go away once the ECM sees the problem is fixed. If not you need a obd II scan tool to erase the code causing the check engine light.

My Mazda CX7 2008 had the check engine light come on. I had it scanned and the code was P0401 and stated it was the ERG valve. Is there a recall on this problem or part?

We just had the same problem in Dec 2010. Purchased ours new Feb 2008. Mazda is aware of the issue. They will not fix it if it is out of warranty, but we have been going to the same dealer for service so they offered to pay for the part (EGR @ $450) if we payed for the labor @ $350. We had several problems with the vehicle, from the turbo failing to motor mounts failing to scraping brakes to rattles that would not go away. The problem is the turbo engine is not burning the fuel well enough so the carbon is coming back into the system past the EGR and clogging the system up. Not sure if it's an ethenol fuel related issue or octane issue. Too much unreliable technology. We sold ours the day after we fixed the EGR issue (w/ 50k miles). It was fixed and running fine, so we didn't feel guilty about passing it on. Just kept reading about needing to save for a new engine around 80k miles b/c of clogged engine valves. We went back to Honda...
